Yikes! It has been awhile since I actually sat down with the intent of posting, I have a billion excuses for why but the only one that matters is I couldn’t seem to write anything I was proud of. I am battling with the capricorn side of me with this whole blogging thing. I wanna be great at it, but also I’m rarely good at things right out the gate (who is?? why do we always convince ourselves that we are the worst one out there? who knows?! why stress over it?)
Between being sad, busy. computerless, and just completely lacking motivation it has been difficult to post. Oh well, it doesn’t matter cause I’m posting now. Yuck, do you ever listen to yourself try to whine away a problem and just get bored of your inner dialogue? I do! I am right now.
Alright, let’s talk about nutrients.
The past few weeks I have really been evaluating how I eat. Obviously I have a relatively healthy diet cause I am required to eat vegetables to exist, but also have you heard of gardein? Ben and Jerry’s dairy free? Daiya cheese? I would consider myself a “junk food” vegan. I am not good at cooking for every meal, and honestly I’m not even good at making sure I eat every meal. I can’t seem to figure out how to grocery shop? Please tell me I’m not the only one with that problem, cause its a weird one. I feel like if I don’t plan out my every meal then I don’t know what to buy at the grocery store. Today I realized I buy at least 3 onions every time I go to kroger, but I rarely use a single onion. I cook so little it’s actually shameful.
Okay, I got rambly because I started thinking about kroger.
So to get to the point.. I feel like there is so much to understand when it comes to nutrition. It’s not just as simple as someone handing you a meal plan (but that would be so cool if it was.) It can get overwhelming and I haven’t figured out how to make it less so. I’m trying to take care of my body but I can hardly figure out what vitamins I should be taking! Who knows.. but I’m in it for the long haul. I am determined to learn. I don’t care if I end up being a whiz kid and figuring it out in a day or if I have to spend a couple weeks really learning to be completely comfortable with what I’m trying to do. Either way, let’s learn together.
Basically the point of this post was just to catch up and also consider the things I’m putting in my body. I feel like I need to learn how to properly fuel this clunky broken down engine. I’m ready to get good at feeding myself and also posting more about my brain and my food.
Cool, if you have any tips and tricks for being vegan and eating a well balanced diet lemme know!!
